Speakers Set for Market Prayer Breakfasts

David JeremiahGary ChapmanTwo prominent Christian speakers and authors in the world are on tap to keynote the Furniture Market Prayer Breakfasts this April and in April, 2016. 

The keynote speaker for this year’s breakfast is Dr. David Jeremiah, host and speaker of the “Turning Point” radio and television programs, best-selling author and senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, Calif.

For April 2016, the keynote speaker is Dr. Gary Chapman, who speaks throughout the U.S. and internationally on marriage, family and relationships. His book, “The Five Love Languages” has sold more than 9 million copies and has been translated into more than 50 languages. Chapman, the senior associate pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, N.C. has also written 34 other books and five video series.

This year’s breakfast Friday, April 17 at 7 a.m. in the International Home Furnishings Center Ballroom on the 11th floor. While recent prayer breakfasts have been held on the official Saturday Opening Day of the High Point Furniture Market, the event is being changed to Friday morning to fit more conveniently in the schedules of market goers. 

Jeremiah, past winner of the National Religious Broadcaster of the Year award, has written more than 50 books including, “What Are You Afraid Of?” and “What to Do When You Don’t Know What to Do.” In 2013, he published “The Jeremiah Study Bible.” 

Tickets for the event are available online at a cost of $30 for an individual, which includes breakfast. Tables for 10 are available for $300 and half tables are $150.

In addition to covering expenses, these funds are directed towards charities and an annual High Point University scholarship.

Where is the diversity in our Industry...What is the matter with a Rabbi or an Imam to represent the number of Muslims and Jews....even agnostics and atheists, in our business? Are we going to continue to be as prejudiced and bigoted as the bulk of the American electorate? When will the Home Furnishings community in the High Point arena wake up to reality...The choice of two 'prominent Christians' is an insult to those of us who are not Christian, are in the business....and yes....we too PRAY!
